I never suggested it, I was merely asking. Look for the word "zope" inside
the Gump3 code to figure out why. ;-)

Yeah, I did that yesterday. Unfortunately the debugger seems to request/set
a command line, rather than work like the Python shell. It works in the
debugger. Oh well, I'm just trying to be more Pythonic this time round, I'll
figure it out.

Good point. Hadn't considered it that way, but I sure did "feel" the
resistence to pass stuff, so I hear ya...

class Dynagumper(AbstractPlugin):
    Populate the DynaGump run metadata database.
    def __init__(self, db, log, startdate_property_name='startdate',

and where thing fail 'cos getattr needs

  def visit_project(self, project):
        """Add information about a project to the database."""
        tablename = "projects"
        startdate = getattr(project, self.startdate_property_name)
        enddate = getattr(project, self.enddate_property_name)
        name =

What were you trying to achieve with this? If we start passing property
names into component we'll blow past 5 like yesterday...
